Wonderfully Broken

Worse than any pain I have ever felt

Worse than the strikes and blows

I endure from you every day

Worse than the beatings and the nights

Locked away in the hallway closet

Is the pain I feel from your words...

Your words that tell me I’m worthless

Your words that echo in my mind

And taunt me day and night

Your words that find me alone in a dark room

With the tears of shame upon my face

Your words like a knife in my flesh that twists

And leaves me writhing on the floor in agony

You see the scars on the outside

But there are some scars you cannot see

Yet I have endured all this pain

And finally made these scars beautiful
